Throwing Hand Grenade At Shia Procession
It has been reported that the Shia procession was taking place in the celebration of the annual Ashura commemoration. The rally was moving towards an Imambargah. The entire commemoration is organized to mourn the death of the Prophet’s grandson, Hussein. He is one of the most beloved saints of the Shia Muslims.
The government has mentioned that the rally had over 500 people, including children. The explosion was caused by a hand grenade thrown into the procession by an unidentified man. The government suspects that this has been a terrorist activity in order to scare the Shia Muslims.
Most of the people who have been injured are young men. The government has also informed that the terrorist attack might be sectariansecretarial in nature. The anti-Shia terrorist groups never leave any opportunity to harm the minority Shia Muslims. Moreover, what better way for the terrorists to harm a group of Shia people than in one of their rallies?
